Hey Richard,

Good to see something up from you again. I'm sure I've missed a couple.

I always remembered you had a thing for social commentary with your scripts. Seems to be another one here, thought it doesn't quite work for me. I think I get what you're going for, but it just seems to get convoluted with the numerous labels they're throwing around and, after a while, I really kinda fell out of the read.

I wouldn't even presume to know what you mean with this.

Steve

Hi Richard,
Like Steve I fell out of the read when they were throwing names around.
Just wondering why these guys were doing this? Were they motivated by money somehow?

Doesnít work for me.  I get the idea with the ending but itís so ridiculous and OTT that I donít think people would laugh, if filmed.  If you scale it back and make it more believable it should work.

I like this. I read this as a satirical piece about white men dominating business using loopholes in ridiculous red tape to maintain their control.

I would add more visuals into this, so we have something to see rather than just hear. Having a chart we can see with the categories rather than one of them using a laptop checklist - for example

Seems a bit racist and prejudice to me. Ehhh script wasn't bad, just probably offensive to some.
